Doyles Lead Halfway Through AYC Spring

Doyles Lead Halfway Through AYC Spring

Sean and Susan Doyle are at the top of the leaderboard midway through the American Yacht Club's Spring series. Their Kestrel posted finishes of 2-2-4 on Saturday and then came back with a 2-1-1 on Sunday. The performance left them with 8 points counting one throw-out at the halfway point of the regatta. One might think that recording only eight points in six races would have left Sean and Susan with a wide lead. It did not. Hot on their heels with just 9 points are the veteran J/105 sailors from Cedar Point, George and Alex Wilbanks, on board Revelation. Their finishes: 6-1-3 and 1-2-2. That one point difference between the Doyle and Wilbanks teams on Sunday is the difference so far in the event. Kevin Grainger, winner of the third race on Saturday, stands in third with 14 points. Tied for fourth: the new AYC junior team sailing Kincsem and Harald Edegran/Jeremey Henderson aboard Conundrum. Thirteen boats raced in the 105 class, which has the largest one-design turnout at the event. The racers all got beautiful weather for the season opening weekend, with warm temperatures and plenty of wind to sail six races. The event concludes next weekend.   Complete results
